    Default NCAA once again proves how ridiculous they are

    http://www.auburn.rivals.com/content.asp?CID=1159915

    According to facts of the case agreed upon by Auburn University and the NCAA enforcement staff, the student-athlete's father and an owner of a scouting service worked together to actively market the student-athlete as a part of a pay-for-play scenario in return for Newton's commitment to attend college and play football. NCAA rules (Bylaw 12.3.3) do not allow individuals or entities to represent a prospective student-athlete for compensation to a school for an athletic scholarship.

    In conjunction with the case, Auburn University has limited the access Newton's father has to the athletics program and Mississippi State has disassociated the involved individual.
    So, let me see if I understand this:

    A father sells his kid to a university if they can come up with an undisclosed sum of money. By some accounts it was several hundred thousand dollars. Now, the NCAA, in its wisdom, says he's still eligible to play because "Based on the information available to the reinstatement staff at this time, we do not have sufficient evidence that Cam Newton or anyone from Auburn was aware of this activity". Really? I mean, REALLY??!!!?

    What a joke. I'm sure it has zero to do with the fact that Auburn will be playing in the SEC championship game with a spot in the National Title Game on the line. Does this mean TCU will get a share of the profits when they end up forfeiting this season in three years?

    I'm no USC fan by any stretch. . .but how is this ANY different than what Reggie Bush did? In fact, one could argue that it's worse.

    I remember when DeShaun Foster got suspended by the NCAA for six games. His "crime"? He was driving in a car that was owned by an agent. No allegation of taking money. No ACTUAL crime. He was borrowing a car that someone loaned him.

    Still in just total shock on this one.

    Wow. I really can't remember any other time where the NCAA has showed their ass this bad over the course of an academic year. And it's only December.

    No. You're immune if you are a member of the SEC in line for a shot at the national title.

    Never thought I'd say this, but I'll definitely be rooting for Oregon.

    We all agree his dad is a P O S. I this goes on far more than you know even at the High School level, obviously for less perks.
    rumors have it there is a federal investigation involved here as well. maybe the NCAA stepped out if because the Feds told them to just go away.I don't think we have heard the last of this yet.
